“Yummy food in generous quantities”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Many people said try Carolyn ' s so we did. Ate breakfast as we left town for home. No one went away hungry and few finished their plates.
We tried hash, omlettes, basic eggs and quiche, which was very full of ham and spinach. All very good as were the grits ( no lumps) and potatoes. Only loser was pancakes for 1 son. Just not your typical Buttermilk pancake. Not sure the secret ingredient but it was not to his liking. Just a personal preference.
Was mismarked on TripAdvisor map and no street address given. Said next door to an insurance company that has closed. Might need an update cause we almost never found it.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Great place and great meal to start the day, the omelets were outstanding! The coffee was okay but service made up for it.

“Corned Beef Hash Well Well Done (Overcooked)! Waitress said....”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

"if you don't want well done - you need to tell us." Onions black and corned beef tasteless.....very few potatoes....left on the plate....waitress really not interested in what I had to say about. Even though did not take the second bite - did not offer alternative. Guess they don't need the business. Very, very crowded and loud. Why would I find it necessary to tell them not to burn the hash? If you get there 1 minute after breakfast hours - you are out of luck. Don't plan to return. Husband had standard breakfast - said okay but nothing special. Waitress did not come back for refills on drinks. They really don't have time or resources to deal with someone who does not like what they were served. Food for the Masses.....

“Breakfast is their specialty”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

I've had breakfast and lunch there on many occasions. I have to say I have always enjoyed the breakfast better than the lunch. The breakfast menu is more extensive and appealing. Food is tasty and service is good. It would be awesome if they offered the breakfast menu during lunch hours! They also do homemade cakes and I've ordered a few in the past and have never been disappointed. Coconut Cream is fantastic as well as the Red Velvet.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We spoke with someone who was also on vacation and they raved about Ms. Carolyn's so we went there for breakfast. I ordered french toast which very spongy and had no egg flavor at all and I could only taste the cinnamon. The fresh assorted berries were very good. The eggs were cooked to order, but the bacon was unusually greasy and not very good. My husband had the hash and he liked it. The service was excellent and the server very friendly. We would not go back.
